Ha-ha, Longside, Yorkshire Sculpture Park
Ha-ha, Longside, Yorkshire Sculpture Park
18th-century landscape designers used the ha-ha as a device to exclude livestock from the immediate grounds of a house while preserving a view of the landscape from the house. A ha-ha often consists of a ditch backed by a wall and is invisible from a distance. The post and wire fence here suggests either no faith in 18th-century methods or ignorance or some other reason.
